Off to the races again.......(5.80 index)

We have scattered rain showers hit and miss, hope more miss than hit lol. Not even any stuff worth chasing, so it better be good for racing...........


This race was rained out last weekend, I hope for the sake of that small track it does not do it anymore, they are already in a world of hurt money wise.

Gotta take your hat off to tracks like that. Not too many left around with the little guy in mind. I just noticed Milan, Mi went NHRA this year. Surely that went over well. LOL.

Good luck Jon.

well phuck me!!! sunny skys until we get there, then these piss ant showers pop up. Called it right there, turn around and head back home.........

The rain will quit, trouble is their pits suck, so any moisture and you have a mud bog. Too late to head to TV, that and i'm too pissed to phuck with it anyway.

Gonna unload and break out the whiskey.


motherphucker.

Jon, your sounding a tad bitter........

I know what you mean, we had this happen last year. Sun all week and rain all weekend. It sucked big horse balls.

Hope it clears up for ya in coming weekends.

cars unloaded, I'm about 3 beers into it lol.

What sucks is this is the prime chasing season, but the death ridge set up killing off pretty much any chances until next year.

We had sunny skys, no humidity, perfect weather all week, then this bull****.

Mother nature can suck mah dyck..............

The chasing is pretty much done, all the chasers on the forum are like looking for new hobbies and suck lol. they blame it on that weather channel "vortex" deal, its like a curse or something. So far next weekend looks like dry and upper 80's here. Will be hot but you can race in it............

Hows the drunk coming along???

The chasing is a pretty short season I guess. Do you travel to other areas WI, OK etc...?

June can be ok here, around then it seeems to move up in the dakotas and such. I'm by no means a diehard, if its in Ok, North Teaxas, South Kansas, west of I-35 I'm there. A lot of the guys book there vacations or "chasecations" in advance, a lot of plane tickets getting refunded right now lol. This pattern we are in right now usually does not happen until late June, its officially know as "the death ridge".

Like I said before, that sounds like a real adrenelin rush to get in close to a funnel. How long have you been chasing?
